Primary 1-2

IMAGINE & WONDER - get a child to imagine and wonder about God.

Primary Years 1 - 2

Stories are the foundation of these early years: stories that help to build a world enriched by imagination and wonder with God at the centre. Through the delightful story telling and beautiful illustrations of the Jesus Storybook Bible, children explore the questions, “Who is God? Where is God? Why did God create me? How do I connect to God” while all the time being nurtured by the growing conviction that God loves them.

Curriculum Framework: Imagine and Wonder

Our curriculum framework is carefully designed to flow through all the primary years, focusing on questions young people are asking at different stages, and ways of learning which come most naturally to them. See the overview here.
